BTS releases new single to mark band’s 10th anniversary

Seoul, Jun 9 (EFE).- South Korean supergroup BTS on Friday released “Take Two,” a new single to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the band’s formation.

The song, the premiere of which was announced on May 31 to coincide with the start of events in Seoul to celebrate BTS’ first decade, was released at 1 pm (04.00 GMT).

A few hours after appearing on Youtube, the official video of the single already had more than 1 million views.

The acoustic pop ballad mixes the soft tones of the members with the rapping of three of them: Suga, RM and J-Hope.

In fact, the song, sung mainly in Korean and punctuated by phrases in English was composed mainly by Suga with the cooperation of the other two main “rhymers” of the group, according to the band’s agency BigHit Music.

“It’s a song that symbolizes both the group’s onward journey and a promise to its dedicated fans, who have shared every moment thus far, to continue walking together in the future,” it said.

The band’s public 10th anniversary festivities in Seoul will end on June 17 with a big event next to the Han River featuring leader RM and which will be streamed.

BTS announced last summer that it would take a break until at least 2025, during which its seven members would focus on personal projects and undertake mandatory military service.

Two of the members, Jin and J-Hope, have already begun their service and are expected to finish around July and November 2024 respectively. EFE
